    It was a great company to work for... As time goes by

    Senior Management (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsI spent almost a decade with this company and it was a great place to. Juniper has the ability to develop great products and being visionary at the same time.
    - Career opportunity
    - excellent people
    - reasonable salary
    - excellent reputation
    - always challenging (and thus never boring)

    ConsWell, we all know that A-People hire A-People and B-People hire C-People. Unfortunately there was a time when some B-People moved into management position and that is where the dilemma started...
    There are many excellent leaders in Juniper but in some geographical regions it is no fun to work for Juniper as there are still some people on board with room for improvement of their personal skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice, most of them know what they are doing and they are excellent. For the others it is useless to give any advice...

    So much potential, but they are flat-lining

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsLong Hours, but flexibility.
    Great Technical teams
    Majority of product is technically very good
    Loyal Customer base

    ConsFrantic cost cutting, so no marketing or expenditure
    Want growth, but don't want to invest to achieve
    Yearly, sometimes twice yearly culls, very de-motivational
    challenging to get new business in with no investment, may as well work for a start up with no resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop paying lip service and politicking.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Busy place experiencing growing pains, questionable quality at VP level, failure to deliver is too readily acceptable

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsIt's a great place to work if you like to be busy and multi task. It's really operational with prioritization to the fore. Benefits are you really learn allot

    ConsLong hours, lack of strategic view, very short tem focused, lack of investment in the sales teams, over hype the technology, competition getting stronger

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the snior management accountable, have consequences for not delivering, more skip interviews and 360s

    A great company to work for, what could be better than making a difference in a company that's making a difference?

    Senior Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsMaking a difference in a company that's making a difference. Lots of change means lots of opportunities to influence and contribute in a positive way. Juniper also has a strong programme of product development in both the Service Provider and Enterprise markets which means you are very unlikely to get stuck in a rut. We also have a very good benefits package - which just adds the cherry on the top of the job satisfaction icing. A nice mix of work/life balance with manageable travel.

    ConsYou have to be prepared to accept continual change which might be hard for some people, but if that's what you like you'll get it in abundance at Juniper!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!
